The Iowa Hawkeyes got their Big Ten season back on track earlier this week as they took home an 87-72 win over #19 Northwestern to get back above .500 in conference play. The game was the first in a stretch of six Iowa will play where five opponents are currently ranked inside the AP top-25.

The next challenge facing the Hawkeyes is their second true road game of the season. After losing in overtime in their first conference road bout at Minnesota, Iowa looks to bounce back in Piscataway where they’ll face off with #14 Rutgers. The Scarlet Knights are fresh off an 81-76 win over Purdue and already hold conference wins over Illinois and Maryland. Rutgers’ lone loss on the season came at the hands of Ohio State ten days ago.

Can Iowa get things going on the road to hand Rutgers their second loss of the season? Can the Scarlet Knights keep Luka Garza under 20 points for the second time in a week? Can Iowa bring the defense we’ve now seen against Northwestern and Purdue? Those questions and many more are about to be answered.
